    We still have a bunch of those hats left---
    The planes were 100" wing span. The T-6 races produced speeds of 125 MPH average. The unlimited races had speeds of over 200 MPH. The record was set at 236 MPH for a Lancair that folded it's wings pulling about 35 Gs in a turn around the pylon. The radar gun was pretty accurate!
